    How Frequently Do I Clean My Persian Rug?


    Posted by

    It’s no secret that the best way to keep your Persian and Oriental rugs clean and protected is to have them cleaned routinely… but how do you know when your area rug needs to be cleaned?

    • Dusting– Rug dusting is recommended every 6-12 months.  Regular rug dusting is important, because it removes dry soil from your rug’s fiber and backing, including dust, sand, dander, hair, dirt, debris, and more.  Rugs in high traffic areas of your home can hold a surprising amount of soil and dust in their fibers.  In fact, a high-quality rug dusting tool will often remove several pounds of debris from a rug, even when the owner brings it in routinely!  The best rug cleaning services are equipped with rug dusting tools that loosen and remove these soils mechanically through intense vibrations.  This process is gentle on the rug, yet highly effective at removing soils from deep within the rug’s fibers.
    • Maintenance Cleaning– Maintenance cleaning is recommended every 12-18 months.  The maintenance cleaning process will vary among rug cleaning companies, but should include a full inspection, dusting and dry soil removal, low moisture cleaning, a neutralizing rinse, and a thorough drying.  This process, when done by the best Jacksonville rug cleaner you can find, will keep your rug clean and protected.
    • Deep Cleaning– It is recommended that you get your rug deep cleaned every 2-3 years.  The best professional rug cleaning companies specialize in deep cleaning packages, which should include dusting and dry soil removal, deep submersion and hand wash in a rug bath, a neutralizing rinse, and a number of other services that are customized to your rug’s unique needs, including the application of a stain protector or brightening of the rug’s fringe.
    • Restorative Cleaning– There are occasions where a rug may require more than the standard cleaning procedures.  For example, a rug that has been severely contaminated by pet urine stains or damaged in storage is a good candidate for a restorative cleaning.In some cases, the damage may be irreparable.  However, if there is one thing that could potentially revive a rug from such a disaster, it’s a restorative cleaning appointment with the best Oriental rug cleaning company in your area!
